Destroy Boys – Fences is available at Apple Music.

There’s a lot of highly praised power coming out of Sacramento, and they go by the name Destroy Boys! Heady angst-filled and inspiring rock n roll reminiscent of what Pixies, Bikini Kill and Bratmobile got infamous for. This is punk rock from the West Coast reinvigorated, and this time around the future of California garage rock feels and sounds like the lyrical depths of Cobain and the raw no apologies feminism of The Slits and Sleater-Kinney.
And we’re in luck, the band just dropped a new feel the pain single “Fences” and a Frank Miller-esque visual masterstroke lyrics video, animated by Olive Lagace, to go along with it. Which you can watch below, along with another must-be-seen film for “Piedmont”, from their 2018 LP, ‘Make Room’.
For fans of legendary The Muffs or newer torchbearers like Pom Pom Squad and Skating Polly and the legacy of riot grrrl/punk rock.
